One Heart Winnipeg

Celebrating One Lord One Church One Harvest
joining congregations together

Greater things are still to be done in this city

THE MUSIC WAS WAY TOO LOUD. After I stuffed Kleenex in my ears it was OK. They should distribute ear plugs to those who value their hearing. We do that at work. Remind everyone to bring ear plugs next time. That's better than Kleenex. No use talking to the sound man. He is operating the biggest and baddest sound board in Winnipeg and wants every one to know he's got the POWER.

It's hard to sing with ear plugs.
Holy Holy Holy all the saints adore Jesus; casting down their golden crowns. Holy Holy Holy

The puppets sang Praise God Tonight. Isaac was supposed to introduce the puppets.

Alleluia for the Lord God Almighty reigns. (Kara does not like my ear plugs. White is too visible.)
You are Holy Lord God Almighty. Worthy is the Lamb.

Prayer time: 30 more seconds. Pray for Winnipeg and Canada. 12800 people did.

Pastor Bruce Martin introduced Dr Brian Stiller.
Good morning Winnipeg. The Stiller clan came from Sweden and moved to Minnedosa.
What are the issues we face today? No other city has a combined worship service like this.
Every city has issues. Secularism is trying to suppress the church.

Is affection for Jesus Christ corny or weird?
5 barley loaves for 12000. How will that help any one? How do you feed them?

Jesus sees what others miss. Brother Cal Stillar won a prestigious medical award. Sandos pharma was looking for soil samples from around the world. A young scientist discovered what others missed.

You and I are made in the image of God. Everyone is "Made in His image"
What's in your hand. A shepherd's staff? To keep from stumbling. To rescue the fallen.
200 years ago a young MP went to visit John Newton.
To stop the slave trade took him all his life.

You begin with what you have.
Pain is the patagogical (learning) moment of God. What do you have? Give it away to find out what you have.
Seed only comes back when you give it away.
There are 2 kinds of people. Givers and takers. Where are you?
Lillian and Brian have been married 48 years. By being givers. That lifts self- absorption. Increases capacity to give more love.
It is not a zero sum game. When I give I get more.
Wilberforce had the gift oratory.
The homeless man has become a radio announcer. He gave his voice.
Give it away NOW. We had no money when we got married.
Begin with what you have. Give away your sorrows and your failures.
God will transform
Expand your business. Begin with what you have and give it away
An 80 year old grandma started visiting a prisoner. Soon others wanted her to visit them too. She did not know what she had till she gave it away.

Communion led by an Anglican priest. Grace and love like a mighty river flowed from above.

When I survey the wondrous cross on which the prince of glory died. Oh the cross bids me come and die and find that I might truly live.

Jesus wants to give you the gift of eternal life. You will never be able to earn it. It is a GIFT. Pray now; Thank you for being my Saviour. I'm sorry for the wrong things I've done. I now receive your gift. Be my Savior and friend.
We rejoice. You have been born again.

I can hear the thunder in the distance. Lay your burdens down. Revive us with your fire.
